Current Employee - Finance Manager in Sunnyvale, CA

I have been working at NetApp full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

An average sized biweekly paycheck. There is nothing else tolerable about this company. This place sucks.

Cons

Idiotic management in many departments. This company is truly a sinking ship. All the smart people have either left or are currently looking to flee.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire incompetent employees. Stop coddling them and throw them out the door.

    I worked at NetApp full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Staff level and people at or Director level are good. TD's are very good but stuck at the spindle level.

    Cons

    VP level and above is more of a club. People that do not deserve the position are there. RTP is a joke run by people who in other companies would be glorified SE's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Throw out the bums and ask Hitz to lead engg. again.

    I worked at NetApp

    Pros

    Love working with intelligent and motivated employees and managers. People are passionate and eager to "do the right thing" for their work and the company. A number of perks in the workplace including onsite gyms, lunch halls, and volunteer time off.

    Cons

    Communication fails consistently throughout the organization. Poor planning and rushing to execution create unfortunate quality concerns. Performance management process pits team members against one another and politics amongst management prevents genuine and authentic people from succeeding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reach out to your line level employees. Understand what drives the employees who build, test, sell, and support our products. Do not take too few data points and create generalizations that support a view. Take time to understand your workforce.
